2014 - Week 23 Winners

Mikael Lundberg (ranked 62nd by Golf Predictor) won the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity on the European PGA Tour. The 40 year old Swede overcame a poor day on Saturday to win his third tour title in a play-off with home favourite Bernd Wiesberger. After storming home in 65, which was eleven shots better than his third round, Lundberg ended up in a tie with the Austrian on -12. On the first play-off hole, Lundberg holed a brilliant birdie putt from distance to capture his first title in six years (and his first outside Russia!). Our top ranked player, Miguel Angel Jimenez, also rallied on Sunday and finished in tied 5th. Overall, we had nine of the top seventeen plus ties (9/23) in total.

Ben Crane (ranked 65th by Golf Predictor) won the FedEx St. Jude Classic on the US PGA Tour. The 38 year old American won his fifth tour title with a grind on Sunday to win by a single shot over Troy Merritt. After opening with a 63, Crane led wire to wire and wisely played the last hole conservatively to ensure the win. Our top ranked player, Dustin Johnson, finished in tied 24th. A lot of the bigger names failed to perform in this weather affected event and we only had five of the top nineteen plus ties (5/23).
